The climb to the “Roof of Africa” is without a doubt the most eminent adventure. Mt. Kilimanjaro was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1989.
This magnificent site of nature is also said to be the tallest free standing mountain in the world, crowned by snow and is one of the world’s most accessible high summits. Most climbers reach the crater rim with little more than a walking stick, proper clothing and determination. And those who reach Uhuru Point, the actual summit, or Gillman’s Point on the lip of the crater, will have earned their climbing certificates. Surely this is worth a climb.
Mt. Kilimanjaro has various climatic conditions starting from the bushland on the bottom of the mountain to the arctic ice region on top of the mountain. It boasts tropical rain forests, evergreen forests, the moorlands and the alpine desert regions in between. There are unique plants and flowers which are specific to Mt Kilimanjaro and surely this is worth a climb.
PAS expects the best for our clients, which is why we have chosen to partner with an expert climbing company that runs the highest quality Kilimanjaro climbs available; they experience an unparalleled high summit success rate of nearly 98%, offering climbs up the more traditional routes like Shira, Macheme and Umbwe in addition to other routes. PAS believes the level of expertise and quality of service that they provide can be matched by no other company who lead treks up Mt. Kilimanjaro, which is also why we have chosen to work with them.
At the onset of your climbing experience you will engage with a team of experts who are generously and ably staffed, including adventure specialists and assistant guides, with a Wilderness First Responder Rescue certification and Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation certification by the American Heart Association and the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). Our partners follow an exacting safety protocol, with a First Aid Kit, and an oxygen tank at all times. They also carry Gamow hyperbaric bags; the best safety equipment for mountain sickness.
